Any more information about the pups? I had a male brindle rescue B that came from a breeder from that area. The breeder had a PA kennel license for a large number of dogs. After I found this out, I figured he had too many male Bs and wanted to sell him at the OH dog auction.
I emailed BRAT about this. JR from BRAT said he called the number and left a voice mail. I haven't heard anything since then. Perhaps they already gave away the dogs. I went back in the classified section of my newspapers, and the ad was in for several days before I noticed it. Most mornings, I don't have time to read the whole paper. I just happened to notice the ad that day.
